Joshua Tree Music Festival

I had so much fun being on the media team for Joshua Tree Music Festival! I went with my mom and we drove over seven hours to get there and then set up our camp under the spectacular desert night sky. The JTMF is a family friendly global music festival held in Joshua Tree, California. Unfortunately there were no actual Joshua trees in the vicinity of the festival but the National Park was only a ten minute drive away! In addition to music, the festival has yoga, workshops, sound healing, land conservation presentations, live art, performances, shopping, food, and more! Lots of people we met have been attending the music festival for over a decade and there were lots of regulars. Luckily, it is held in October so we escaped the desert heat, however it was extremely windy most of the time and it was difficult to keep our camp in tact! JTMF is also held in May as well. On the drive home, our experience was topped off with witnessing Elon Musk’s Space X launch in southern California, which I thought for sure was a UFO when I saw it! Later on we found out it was a rocket. Still trippyyy!

One Stop Soul Shop at Northern Nights

When I was shopping at the vendor booths at Northern Nights I was immediately attracted to One Stop Soul Shop! The owner, Mackenzie, is a boss babe entrepreneur who makes beautiful one-of-a-kind dreamcatchers and crystal jewelry. Her passion and positive vibes radiate into her creations. We set up a photoshoot, and as we were walking to the shooting location we passed a beautiful woman that we thought we also be an amazing model for the shoot! Her name was Sara, and she kindly agreed to model, as you can see in the first few photos. I just love how this shoot synchronistically came together!

Ariel Peake at Northern Nights

          Norther Nights was SO. MUCH. FUN!! For sure one of my favorite music festivals of all time. One of the stages was located in a grove of redwood trees with beautiful decorations all around, which is where we shot these photos. Ariel was an "Influencer" for the festival and got a free VIP ticket so she could share and promote the festival with her large social media following. For our first look we shot a hat from Neon Cowboys and then switched it up with an outfit from Noralina Freedom Designs who had a booth at the festival. Our shoot was abruptly ended by someone screaming on an acid trip, but up until that point we had a very lovely time!

Enchanted Forest Gathering

Enchanted Forest Gathering
Dates: June 9th to 11th, 2018
Location: Black Oak Ranch, Laytonville, CA along Highway 101

I had such a fun experience being on the Media Team for Enchanted Forest Gathering! The staff was super nice, treated us so well and really valued our work. The vibes of this music festival were fun, friendly, and it felt like a community where everyone cared about each other and was looking out for each other. The festival offered several stages of music, top-notch people watching, fresh organic food, unique shopping vendors, different styles of camping, and an all-around excellent experience! If you have never been to a music festival before, I would recommend this as your first!
